Louis Vuitton Socoa Damier Sunglasses
After spotting this pair of Louis Vuitton Socoa Damier Sunglasses in the pre-spring 2009 lookbook online, I can't see to get it out of my mind. I am strangely attracted to the idea of the photochromic lens which darken in bright light to reveal the iconic Damier pattern. Such cool innovative idea! The damier pattern has always been 'handsome' for a guy, and now infused into sunglasses technology, even more suave. James Bond will be proud and lusting for one of these! Definitely a conversational piece when your friends see you shades changing to a checks pattern.
I wonder if the acetate version for women, Louis Vuitton Illusion Glitter Sunglasses (which I have blog about and I feel it works for guys as well!) has the same effect on its photochromic lens.
Nevertheless, I love the Socoa Damier in silver, perhaps when I fulfilled my 'want' list for this season and with budget left, will get a pair of these and start my 'James Bond' impersonation!:-P
